thing or a method was old or new had nothing to do with her use of it. The only question with her was, “Will it work?” She never obtruded the fact of newness of method, but went steadily along. Thus she may be said to have created in North India the movement for the higher education of Hindu women. And hers was the first “Woman's Christian College" in all Asia. And again, later, she was the mother of the deaconess order in that far land. A woman of widely hospitable nature, in her European, Eurasian, Moslem, and Hindu alike found friend and adviser. And in her the teacher met the earnest evangelist, and the saint with a touch of mystic enthusiasm was mingled with the hard-headed woman of affairs. And with it all she was so unpretending, so kindly and genial, so free from any affectation, so genuine and so simple in her ways, the poorest and the humblest were happy in her company and the most cultivated found her worth while. In her Lal Bogh Home which housed her college hung a motto, “This house for God"—that was the key to it all. The closing chapter of the book is by Miss Lilanati Singh, a pupil and afterward a fellowteacher. The chapter breathes the fragrance of a great love and a deep devotion. Happy the teacher and rare who can thus grip the heart of a scholar. And how saintly the influence of the teacher let Miss Singh testify: “How can I tell the story of her beautiful, perfect life as I have seen it these ten years. Again and again the thought would come to me that, just as Jesus came to show us the Father, she had come to show us Jesus." One closes this book with a strange stir of heart. You have journeyed in loving companionship with a strong, fragrant soul. That the life was lived in that weird, romantic East which ever sets one dreaming, and that its story is written by the firm, sure hand of a brother who shared her life and was beyond all others her fellow-missionary, gives this book intense interest. We commend it earnestly to all Christian men and women as a spiritual tonic, and as a window into the heart of great movements that affect mightily our day.

MISCELLANEOUS.

The Emphasized Bible. A new Translation designed to set forth the exact Mean

ing, the proper Terminology, and the graphic Style of the Sacred Originals; arranged to show at a glance Narrative, Speech, Parallelism, and Logical Analysis, also to enable the student readily to distinguish the several divine names; and emphasized throughout after the idioms of the Hebrew and Greek tongues, with expository introduction, select references, and Appendices of Notes. This Version has been adjusted, in the Old Testament, to the newly revised MassoreticoCritical text (or assured emendations) of Dr. Ginsburg; and, in the New Testament, to the critical text ("formed exclusively on documentary evidence") of Drs. Westcott and Hort. By JOSEPH BRYANT ROTHERHAM, Translator of the “New Testament Critically Emphasized.” Volume I, Genesis-Ruth; Volume II, 1 Samuel-Psalms; Volume III, Proverbs-Malachi. Large 8vo, pp. 920. New York: Fleming H. Revell Company. Price, cloth, $2 per volume.

We have presented this title entire, just as the author has written it and the publisher printed it in the front of each volume. It is surely comprehensive. It makes a preface unnecessary, a table of contents needless, and an index uncalled for. The book is as quaint, curious, and old-fashioned as its title. Its production cost immense labor-that is evident on the first glance, and is increasingly clear as one turns page after page. It is sad to have to say that it is wasted labor and misdirected industry. Here is a new translation of the Old Testament. There is always need for another translation of the Old Testament, for no man and no company of men have ever yet sounded all its depths, nor been able to set all its musical num. bers into the measures of English speech. But when a new translation is made it must be made only by a man who knows the former translations and who knows the progress which has been made in biblical philology and lexicography since these translations were produced. Now, Mr. Rotherham knows the former translations, but his knowledge does not extend to and embrace modern progress in biblical science. His authorities are scanty and meager in the ex. treme. He follows Ginsburg's text of the Hebrew. Bible and his introduction, and follows them with an amazing devotion. He has used only one modern Hebrew Grammar (Davidson's) and knows only the old Davies version of the Gesenius Grammar and nothing of the great grammars of Stade and König in German. For dictionaries he has used the Oxford Gesenius (edited by Brown, Driver, and Briggs) as far as published, and the antiquated edition of Tregelles. He knows nothing of the new German Gesenius or of the Siegfried and Stade. In respect of commentators he is still worse off, for we can find cited no other commentaries than the expository books of George Adam Smith. Delitzsch, Dillmann, and Driver are unknown or unused, and the long line of the great critical commentaries in German and even in French are unexplored. Ginsburg's Hebrew Text is good, but ought in no wise to be followed blindly, as Rotherham would have learned bad he been able, or will. ing, to learn from Kautzsch, Kittel, Nowack, and others who have proved and tested his work. In short, the translation does not meet the requirements of modern scholarship. As to its emphasizing, we need only say that the whole process is misleading or worthless. The Hebrew language has indeed means to indicate emphasis, but the Hebrew Bible is not therefore a plain bespattered with rocks of emphasis. Rotherham has simply turned the plain letter of Scripture into a sea of diacritical marks. The people who need all this instruction in finding the emphatic words would never take the time or care to understand and utilize such volumes as these. The rest have no need for such crutches.
